On October 4th our dad Rick was diagnosed with stage IV lung cancer that had spread to his brain. Immediately after the diagnosis, doctors were confident that with treatment, our dad could have several more years to be with us.
Unfortunately, 36 days after his diagnosis, 22 of which were spent in the hospital, our dad passed away on November 10th due to a wide range of complications that resulted from the cancer. During that time our dad underwent a multitude of tests and procedures with a seemingly endless number of doctors.
This has been a very difficult time for our family, especially for our mom. In order to support our mom through this emotional time we started this gofundme page to help offset the cost of our dad's medical expenses.
Any type of support is greatly appreciated and we sincerely thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
David, Hilary and Ben
